(There's really been a lot of these, right?)

The stormy season of April had passed by during the night, and with the rising sun, the day is giving way to the fragrant bloom of May blossoms. Clouds part way for the bright sun to illuminate the paintbrush hues of the landscape, and the warm late-season breeze carries with it all varieties of birdsong, filling the air with the color and chorus of life.

Which is why this was the perfect day to stay indoors to do some inner research. For once, it was better to disregard these byproducts for today, the piercing bore of human progress has finally cracked open the foundations of reality; you had just discovered a time machine.

Well, what else could it be? It even looked like someone had done a spectacularly terrible job of trying to disguise the fact that it could pretty much only be a time machine. It was, in fact the most stereotypically time machine-like time machine anyone could imagine, yet it looks as if someone had sloppily taped cardboard around it in an attempt to make it look like a refrigerator. It was such shoddy work, and you wondered why anyone had even bothered.
MOD EDIT:Original text moved to hide tag
The thing that was definitely a time machine loomed like a statue in the center of the room, wafting out a faint scent of ozone and copper. It must have displaced the matter around it as it arrived, since one of its edges was occupying the space where half of your chair should have been. As you shove the chair aside, it toppled over on its two remaining legs, thumping down on the dusty floor. Looking around, you started reaching for the entrance handle, but thought better of it. Instead, you move over to the small mailbox-shaped bin attached to the side of the machine. There was nothing inside except for a newspaper clipping and an envelope. You take a look at the newspaper, a cutout of the week’s weather, dated three years into the future. It was otherwise unremarkable, so you open up the envelope.

Wow, why would you write something like that? It was disorienting, seeing your own handwriting attached to a message you clearly have never written, and definitely, resolutely, never will. But now, you know you will. The presence of the note, along with the time machine, is undeniable. With the staggering weight of this realization, you reached for a chair, but found only half of one. You plop down on the

What is the best way of characterizing the analytic/continental distinction?

Writing is an attempt by the author to express their thoughts on paper as purely as they are expressed in the mind, and minds express these thoughts in a multitude of different ways. In this essay, I will discuss the analytic/continental divide, arguing that the best way to characterize the distinction is through the differences each tradition has in terms of literary style.
Before getting into the heart of the essay, I will briefly explain some characteristics of the analytic and continental tradition, particularly corresponding methodology. I will then begin, establishing two established ways of characterizing the divide, the first being the geographic distinction, the second being clarity. I will indicate the imperfections in these methods, and will present my own way of characterizing the divide that addresses these flaws, the way being through literary style. I will discuss two definable and recognizable terms of said literary style, and discuss the terms applied to each tradition, as well as the differences therein.
As there is an abundance of ways to characterize this divide, I can only focus on those most significant to my purposes. Nevertheless, through flaws of others, I will build the literary style distinction, and aim to prove it as the best and most useful means of making the distinction clear and characterizable.

1. Analytic/Continental Background
What needs to be done in this section, is the methodology of each needs to be explained.
The Continental tradition finds its origins in the works of Kant, and was firmly established through the writings of Hegel. Among its fundamental principles include a desire to find and answer philosophical questions unapproachable within a scientific framework, and possibly most notably a lack of concern as to the fluidity and ease-of-comprehension of the writing. In his Logic, Hegel wrote,
“...to want the nature of cognition clarified prior to the science is to demand that it be considered outside the science; outside the science this cannot be accomplished, at least not in a scientific manner and such a manner is alone here in place [44 words]” (Logic, pg 173).
The sentiment expressed of cognition extends to time, and the whole of metaphysics, and has remained near the heart of continental philosophy. Heidegger expressed a similar sentiment on being, and what this sentiment essenti

Oh this is my actual essay.

I forgot to get rid of that bit after point 1, and there's still some notes for myself.
It's not a final draft yet.
I'll have a final draft done by midnight tonight, god willing.
The bits I've posted are the parts that I've reviewed once. It'll almost certainly change up a bit more.
I'll revise the rest and post it once I'm happier with it.

I'm ready to be done with this one

"States that voted for Trump most impacted by ObamaCare move." Macaroni !RevGiOKgRo 805443[View]


>States that voted for President Trump in the 2016 presidential election will be most impacted by his decision to cut off key ObamaCare payments, according to an analysis conducted by The Associated Press.

>The study found that 70 percent of those who benefit from the subsidies are from states where Trump won.

>In the 30 states that Trump carried, about 4 million people benefit from the cost-sharing payments, the AP reported.

>Nine out of the ten states with the highest percentage of people benefiting from the payments voted for Trump, according to the AP. The White House announced last week that Trump would end key payments to insurers selling ObamaCare plans.
